I'm not really new to BOINC and I've been on the team for a couple of months (before that I was crunching for a team local to my city), but I'll give it a go anyways.Why I joined BOINC
: One day, a little over a year ago, I was bored, and decided to look up this cool-sounding project my dad had explained to me: SETI@home. Their website linked back to the BOINC site, and after taking a look through the list of projects, I thought WCG was a great cause to donate my spare cycles to.My current projects
: GPUGrid, Docking@home, Rosetta@home, World Community Grid, Renderfarm.fi, BURP. I run SETI@home and GPUGrid during BGB due to high credits recieved. I'm currently running WUProp@home as well, to see if that'll give me more credits than SETI@home.My current hardware
: My sig rig, primarily. My brother's E6850 also chugs away while he's at school (the joys of younger siblings
). When I finish tweaking my sig rig to my satisfaction, I'll get (back) to work setting up a dedicated rig with an Athlon 64 X2 4800+ in it (also in my sig). I've convinced one set of grandparents to run Grid Republic, but I don't collect their credits.
